The American Civil Liberties Union of Indiana launched a class action Tuesday against that state's board of law examiners, asserting that inquiries into the mental health of those seeking a law license violate federal disabilities law. The ACLU filed the suit on behalf of a woman licensed in Illinois who is seeking admission to the Indiana State Bar Association. She wants an injunction prohibiting the Indiana State Board of Law Examiners from asking certain questions about mental fitness.
